The Belmont Stakes normally is the third and final leg of the Triple Crown, but the coronavirus pandemic has altered the horse racing calendar a bit. Now the Belmont Stakes will serve as the first leg of the Triple Crown as the race will take place on June 20.

When you're looking at the field for the 152nd running of the iconic race, there are a few favorites that could take home the victory. Tiz the Law is currently listed as the favorite with 3-2 odds of winning the Belmont Stakes. The three-year old thoroughbred also recently won the Florida Derby and was viewed as one of the favorites for the Kentucky Derby when that was still viewed as the first leg of the Triple Crown. Tiz the Law also won the 2019 Champagne Stakes, which is run at Belmont Park, with a time of 1:35:41.

Dr. Post has the second-highest odds to win the Belmont Stakes at 9-1. The three-year old thoroughbred is coming off a first place finish in the Unbridled Stakes where he won with a time of 1:43:07 on the 1 1/16-mile track. In two starts this year, Dr. Post has turned in a pair of first place finishes.

  1. Tap It To Win
  2. Sole Volante
  3. Max Player
  4. Modernist
